This course will teach you how to use lighting and shooting methods for a range of lighting set-ups. During the course of the training, you will be learning basic setup, as well as creative lighting in a variety of different settings including Educational, Promotional, Informational, Documentary, Interviews, and Photojournalism. You will then get hands-on practice with video lighting using your video-capable DSLR (or any other video camera you may have). This course is useful for Video Professionals using applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cut Pro X, Avid, and for eLearning Professionals using applications such as Adobe Captivate, Articulate Storyline, and Camtasia.
